|I have recently been playing with Clojure for personal projects. It is quite addictive. Also I am shocked by its leverage and how productive I am in it.|
Now at work (Java and C++) I am constantly thinking of ways of getting my next Clojure fix.
How should I solve this problem? The problem is that I would rather program in Clojure than anything else. Here are some ideas and issues with them.
1. Switch jobs. Except that most of the jobs on Craigslist (SF Bay) that mention Clojure list it with five other buzz words. It sounds like interview bait. There is no guarantee there will be Clojure on the job.
2. Ask my company to use Clojure. I suspect they will not be open to this because they have a mob of Java programmers who won't understand the code. They rejected another person's request to use Scala a few months ago. Still worth a shot. But I can see the PHB eyes glazing over.
3. Create a web-based start-up using Clojure. Despite Clojure's productivity this will take some time. This is the path I am working on right now. But it seems like such a long slog.
